If you’re looking for ways to be more productive the answer will NOT be found in multi-tasking! Trying to complete more than one task at a time only slows you down while also compromising the quality of your results! Juggling multiple tasks makes it extremely difficult to stay focused and this makes it more challenging to avoid mistakes or to use your time efficiently! In order to increase how productively you use your time and to also boost the quality of your results you must narrow your focus to completing ONLY one task at a time which is known as single tasking!
To get a better understanding of why multi-tasking really does NOT save you time and why you need to turn your focus to only one thing at a time to increase your productivity check out the following short video!
For most people in order to be more productive you must first put aside your overly ambitious to-do list and narrow your focus to simply one thing at a time! Hopping from one task to the next actually slows down your progress, as explained above, making it very difficult to stay focused on what your doing which opens the door for you to make mistakes! By single tasking, you focus your efforts on just one thing, without interruption, thus allowing you to complete tasks quicker and with a lot less errors! Although multi-tasking may give you the impression you’re being really productive, the fact is you are just busier but not being as productive as if you kept your focus on just one task until it has been completed!
